Anyone have any info on this fork. I have been told from an unreliable source that it weighs 362 grams on his bathroom scale----what is it really?

It is the OEM fork for Javelin CX bikes. I call BS on the weight.

Elmar, it is slang for Bull Sh*t, meaning that they are feeding you mistruths (not lies).

Cyclocrossworld.com claims it weighs 500 grams. My friend has it and it does ride well...

I wouldn't go near that fork. I got to watch two snap at one race last year. The steerer tubes are simply not robust enough for cyclocross.
